The Langya virus carried by Common Musk Shrew/House Shrew has sickened a large number of people in China these days Researchers are discovering and studying a new virus in China.
According to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine last week, the Langya virus was identified in 35 patients from two eastern Chinese provinces. 26 of them are mostly employed as farmers.
These people tested positive only for Langya henipavirus aka LayV. And all are saved.
Patients experience fever, fatigue, cough, nausea, headache, vomiting and liver and kidney problems.
According to the study, Langya does not appear to transfer from human to human, but rather from animal to human, especially via ticks.
In addition, the study showed that it was also found in goats
and dogs. Taiwan’s Centers for Disease Control said on Sunday that its scientists were working to map transmission routes and establish genetic sequencing to test those with symptoms.
